The transition to a net-zero economy that leaves no one behind places social issues at the heart of the agenda. The transition to a low-carbon economy will not only affect economies and businesses but will have far-reaching impact on communities and workers affected by job losses, stagnant wages, and new work dynamics. The Covid-19 Pandemic underscored the importance of social equity and economic stability and only brought forward the need for building resilience and collective action to deal with systemic risks and inequalities including climate change.
This webinar looks at the dimensions of a “just transition” framework, the financial sector’s approach to the discussion with stakeholders across different sectors, and how can we build a stronger inclusive and equitable future with decent work that is sustainable and addresses systemic risk and injustice.
